- Summary: Tomb Raider: Legend revives the athletic, intelligent and entertaining adventurer who won the hearts and minds of gamers worldwide. Lara comes alive with intricately animated expressions, moves and abilities. An arsenal of modern equipment, such as a magnetic grappling device, binoculars, frag grenades, personal lighting device and communications equipment, allows gamers to experience tomb raiding as never before. Eidos and Crystal Dynamics shaped Lara's look and movements to be an inherent extension of her skills, motivation and personality. Lara's character model features natural structure, realistic textures, detailed facial features, reactive eyes and fluid motion, all of which make her part of a living environment. New character animations and controls allow her to move through stunning environments with grace and precision, while an understanding of the game's original appeal reinvigorates the fundamental explore-and-solve adventure experience.

robertdb8A great change, a new age of tomb raider is born.
ChrisS.6The control issues have been fixed and with "next gen" deactivated frame rates are fast even at the highest resolutions. With "next gen" turned on, forget about it. Combat plays too large a role in this game and is poorly implemented and hard to handle. The animal attacks are truly annoying and should be ditched alltogether. The puzzles are too few and too easy. What we have here is a good foundation upon which can be built a much better game.… Collapse
With the impending release of the excellent looking Tomb Raider reboot, I've recently played through Anniversary, Legend, and Underworld, to get familiar with the saga and see what all the hype is about. I'll be blunt: Legend was the absolute worst, by far. The puzzles were easy, combat was a joke, and the boss fights were a chore. If anyone else is considering playing these titles, do yourself a favor and skip Legend. Anniversary is an excellent remake the original, and Underworld gives you the final installment of these set of games. And don't worry about missing the plot from Legend. Underworld brings you up to speed with a short video, or you can read the wiki, which would only be about 10x as fun as actually playing this game.… Expand
